What Health Risks Do People On The Ketogenic Diet Have
Have you noticed that the most successful things that come in direct conflict with established “big business” are promoted to be bad by those companies and the media. Often a lot of studies are referenced, but when you take a close look at the studies they don’t apply to the situation. I believe that is the case for the ketogenic diet.
Dr. Berg talks about why keto (ketosis, the ketogenic diet) is considered dangerous and has gotten a bad rap because it increases your risk for diabetes, metabolic syndrome, spiking your blood sugars and making you fat. There were over 650 publications stating that a high fat diet increases your risk for all sorts of health problems. However, if you evaluate this HIGH FAT DIET they fed rats, you will find it is really a high fat, high carb diet, which IF you combine high fats with high sugar, you can increases your risk for blood sugar problems, high cholesterol, diabetes and lots of other problems.
What is the most important thing in a true healthy keto diet? It is eating very low carbs. Just think what it would do to the sugar and processed food industries if that truth became widespread and was followed.
The other element to a keto diet is the quality of fats that you eat. When you look into these studies that say keto is dangerous look at the fats being used. Are they low quality fats (margarine, soy oil, hydrogenated soy oil, lard, corn oil. Anyone who has been educated about keto (or health eating) knows to avoid those fats.
Another component of a healthy keto diet is the consumption of lots of fresh vegetables, not synthetic vitamins. Another way to check if a study is legit.
I like to ask critical people of keto and intermittent fasting what would they recommend as a healthy diet – and this is where conversation ends fast, because they do not have one and don’t want to talk about that.
Watch and listen to what Dr. Berg has to say.
